A weeping maple with coarsely-dissected foliage. New leaves emerge orange and retain this tone alongside the summer colour of bronze-red. Fiery red and orange leaves are displayed in the fall.
Best planted in a well-drained soil with high organic matter. Japanese maples are grown as specimen trees or multi-stemmed plants. Any pruning should be done in summer. Mulch well, but avoid heaping mulch against the stem. Most cultivars need full sun or light afternoon shade.
